Target machine actively refused

Rate this question

Question

Guest

Why would the target machine actively refuse to connect me? I have my active login credentials in uTorrent with proxy set to proxy.torguard.tg port 1080. Getting following message with checkMyTorrentIP:

 

"Proxy connect error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it."

 

Tried restarting uTorrent a few times. Normally works fine.

It was actually our new firewall just a tad overly sensitive :)

Started getting the same error message again. I changed the proxy in uTorrent from proxy.torguard.tg to proxy.torguard.org as suggested by Jeremy in chat and it is working again. Was not aware it had been changed.

Hello Alex

 

It can only be one of 2 things, your using the wrong hostname/IP or you have copied and pasted blank spaces at the end or start of your hostname.
